political. news. outlets. i've spent a large part of my career developing an expertise on high profile large scale projects museum's corporate headquarters for international organizations skyscrapers. in my belief is that in developing africa we need to find solutions that can be developed by the grassroots through the grassroots and that she's the same level of significance as
12:35 pm
we have on the sort of high end projects. is a very extreme and powerful example. is a shift in africa it's a community that has almost no roads in the conventional sense no land no more infrastructure yet they've been able to develop such a huge. community building its. restaurants. stores. the news the fish you know the trades they have a very scum plate social structure all almost out of what one could imagine in the conventional sense. for me it
12:36 pm
represents a condition of almost maximum. minimum means. i . guess if i. wasn't my fault why this is the right side. i. sit on the. interns
12:37 pm
for design in the business school and. i wish we got home to the goal of these days we are also opening all private on the given to government us government to come to this home and see. the concept of me go to school came from the community. were simply trying to solve very basic problems that i experience those issues were issues of flooding difficulty in building large structures within very marshy muddy soil under the ground. it's built on a base floating on about two hundred fifty barrels it allows the building to rise
12:38 pm
and fall with changing tides to. the ground level is used as a playground for. kids journal school hours and space or cultural events for the rest of the community after hours that on weekends. the middle section is primarily for the students' classrooms. and so it's a multicultural multi-functional building. quite
12:39 pm
a bit of repair work. their entire ceiling has a sort of generator what happens to all these lights i don't know why this is so it's a look at all so what i think you need to do is take out just replace this very very just take this out completely. was on the list also placed. was. nice and. good. good. they were days away really is naming going to conditionally that. we've been with
12:40 pm
a four legged cup around the problem we also want to get along get it out of our from the federal government i don't know what you've got my back under is where the my what's your ear. him do say in the news that the beauty is an integral structure . on the. one missing in my you know without a doubt going to come on tony down you know we're going to know because. to come do under. those last one of you know when you're going to demolish or how does you. simply throw out the kids given to come and see your commute to about the three houses. without the permission without them to show nothing nothing. i mean no one is a mind. but
12:41 pm
there are hundreds and if not thousands of. all over africa. we cannot simply be displaced this population i think it's important to think about how soon in fact develop them how to create enabling environments for them to thrive soon koofi sanitation conditions to provide the infrastructure to provide schools hospitals to make it a healthy place. greater
12:42 pm
good city is an elite to be sure it's nancy.
12:43 pm
last. night i am back on house then vote now so. i say they give us thank you law so far is that god. knows i said and there goes a demagogue some less for is that our own land. where. is it is there's a there. now what that the fuck. now i'm come on them come on down and see something for. the kind of this money. goes to
12:44 pm
a new as is it then deep deep inside. oh yeah no money they can buy oh yeah my little. cotton. this place is a magnet and the. man yeah my my my my my have is. yes she that kind of have that we. do want to do but don't think we have to bottom out we did was the place you want to take me out of my list you wouldn't do it would just be what exactly what i will not do all fronts this is that democracy it's not till i come out there you have to decide if i make it that is what the movie just thinks. i'm the governance face impressions of open eyes ation and developments and communities like this
12:45 pm
that i on the privilege have no infrastructure. one of the first affected because the government's wants change. the. historical women see it's it's double the what put that to your mind about what did the government just did stamp as you just said the battle. of obesity because goes back a week that was why we would launch and become pink on their own lives but i think we're moving to we're just saying we don't agree with. it was a zone where we are going into government not totally we want you to come but you know we want development development it's about the phone rights to which we are
12:46 pm
not a question for which in the government. but not for the not for it because you know nothing to fight for. so if we have something like this for for the communities we mark each house where we need water where we need training age where we need where we need school where we need clinic but also the history of this place we can also tell the stories of the communities very happy that was here today i want to see him to be put into this. what it probably stood out that will come out to be done on the floor thank you thank you very much thank you michael. pleasure. if we're able to demonstrate that within such communities you can actually create change through themselves with themselves with their own assets with own resources
12:47 pm
and we may also be able to change perceptions in a positive way. in the water is out now. but when the water's in this is actually quite a lovely day and when we first started we used to look at this day when we decided that we were going to build a community media center and we used to joke about having a screen floating and i saw one day in a magazine an image of this floating school which had been in. and i thought this jetty and this by and what we're trying to do. my my be. already there there it's very very very very.
12:48 pm
good that's good. is the fact. that. we had several questions about where the committee would like the building to be located and due to the historic interests of the community as efficient community. and perhaps just out of their own aspiration what the imagine their future to be the consensus was that they wanted something both from london. so that definitely influenced a concept as you see it like bastards and so on them to be a structure that's dark.
12:49 pm
title condition changes goes sort of up and down almost two times a day and what we've done is that this sort of very delicate end of the. project of the structure has a flirtation platform i'm not floating platform goes up and down. will be presenting to the community this is one of many presentations that we've given the past months in this process and it's it's again another form of community engagement issue the development of the projects and. to also get feedback it's an ongoing process on. the milling is in the lime ends with this jets and it will come up like that.
12:50 pm
it's ten meters wide very big so i would say the end of it's probably would reach somewhere around carefully. to the end of its wood roots even somewhere here so this is the part of the vision that we believe that you know you have the water from coming to shoot embrace that it is not about reclaiming more land every time but it is about using you know what are frogs for diary creational activities and if your job hopefully you teach a place where you can walk around you can do things and see what completes what's out front area once you enjoy it. this is. the.
12:51 pm
most money. and. this is. the i deserve it as you say this is just take this is the case of the day for the way this takes you to slip. out of the kind of. thinking that the last thing to do what. i was going to see from the. front indeed look of destruction i believe when it's going to school to be a very beautiful sites for what i want to ask this without being a physician for a compact what if i've got a good look. because i'm coming from different directions some of the city before if there's like a. good artist like not. just going to ten year olds. i think it's going to be nobody was going to pull so does this
12:52 pm
discussion. the idea is that how can we now design that platform at the same time address the concerns of safety you know address concerns of use small c functional use michael's word in distinguish you put that in mind. it will be very big. that they will move to these platforms with. inductees yeah. ok. well doing any. of that type that comes ok so you're going to find out the height of the tax. so you quite need to because this is now years was witty we should not be afraid of taking responsibility because this is the big project. in terms of maintaining the system should also be considered most of this is going
12:53 pm
to be built with wood that's the idea and. i don't know some of you that know there are lots of. hardware and would in fact would do that performs of them better. the more it gets where i won that one. thing was much easier for the introduction of this into this community has a huge amount of intellectual capital and i see that and and i think for the first time the we'll get an opportunity to compose that into a physical structure move themselves into a sort of a new era of change. by the time. we need to have a really clear concrete sense of how we're going to proceed from these final stages
12:54 pm
of design development because we still go. quite a lot of design. detail into the into technical design and construction so. markers and. robots so i'm very curious about what your thoughts about this point to collect this is this is this just mass spoke with a real culture that is reinforced so the thing that we can actually support the troops. of this sort of structure and on top of this for me to look at the pilots that's correct they're not really down pittsburgh kept on top of the piles and then they have this. it's like it's now twenty to twenty two years old. is strong but now we're never going to be put in talk to this before i see the. scene because i i think i prefer to wait for more funding sure.
12:55 pm
what is the law just section of timber because i guess it depends that you can get along that we have mine mine mine it. seems the longest you're going to get along it would seem odd along. the coast you in kill in the pilot and there's of course so much to modernize and that with me so once you can please all sites you have been a do as much process you can to my surmise then bring in that kind of equipment just like in the first instance the building joe metry needs to be a bit more resolved to get really see visually satisfied with what's going on now just relax structure and said you did should we be ok so we didn't design for you know the middle of last time you know what the sixty years in the sun do you probably get through the night time doing around. we'll is that what it is yeah we
12:56 pm
are beginning to see a lot of storms and sadness is a project that is in and sufficient of the changing climate for. sure. but i couldn't. believe that it. would have meaning i am really although to be here and. happy to be able to be part of what i think is going to be a great thing this is where the whole world becoming to be chose and hopefully it
12:57 pm
will be and i it will be an iconic police density for the whole community what i offer a community input cycles. thank you. we are people not trying to use our voice the al denies ishaan to desist wrong policies because the on this mob. we are led to present it on this mom but in the government mom we are not down all these it out. is scream many people don's leave that is why you see want to. pull leave yeah. my work embodies. you know at least three important values war one is that it solves a problem. too is that it is connected to the earth and its environment and three
12:58 pm
is that. it's transformative. by itself all of its environments and its people so this is where i see a new hopefully should come through in this project that we're able to bring all of these things together. rio has big plans to turn its largest favelas into spectacles. but inside the favelas. has big plans of his own. building since the age of twelve listen trained yet skilled architect has as good a chance as any at seeing his vision come to light. the padre and the mosque to plan out the concluding part of rebel. at this time on. business update scroll
